Sacred Silence


Take a moment.

Breathe and listen and let all else go, all the trappings of this life.


Do you know what this day is? Do you understand the significance?

God became man.

Are you listening?

God, the Almighty Creator of heaven, earth, every mitochondria of your being, every stray thought, every eyelash -- he was born. Maybe not today; does it matter? Today we celebrate this miracle.

God became man. He lived a sinless life. He took our evils on his back, and he bore them. He paid for them. He died for them. He vaporized them. And, because he was God, he resurrected himself. Are you hearing? Are you understanding?

God - became - man.

Are you listening?

  1. You write beautifully! And grammatically correct! I think. I'm assuming, anyway, because Missy has built you up to be a genius at punctuation and such.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to following your blog. I'm on my sister's lap top in Utah right now so I will have to get caught up next week.

    Have a wonderful New Year!
